Furniture of the New Zealand Colonial Era is without doubt the most lavishly illustrated New Zealand book to be published so far this century, and will rank among the most historically significant. A definitive account of the furniture and interiors of nineteenth-century New Zealand, and of the cabinetmaking industry throughout that period, the book is crammed full of never-before-published research and images. The contents range over early settlement, imported furnishings, campaign furniture, New Zealand timbers, the birth of a local cabinetmaking industry, the major furniture makers such as Johan Levien and William Seuffert, New Zealand design and the great exhibitions. A ground-breaking database of cabinetmakers, most of whom are represented in photographs, is contained in an appendix. Illustrated with almost 1500 photographs, illustrations, reproductions of advertisements, working drawings and cabinetmakers' catalogues this is a work of timeless appeal not only for fans of antiques and history but for all who appreciate a truly beautiful book.
